Street sweepers are important machines for roadwork operations and construction sites. We have a large range of street sweeper hire suppliers right across the country on the iseekplant database, allowing you to quickly and easily choose the best street sweeper option in your local area.
The street sweeper was invented back in the 1840s in response to dirty and unhealthy streets around the world. Early street sweepers were basically just disks covered in broom bristles that would rotate to sweep the dirt off the streets. For road construction projects, street sweepers that can handle a variety of heavy material are needed, including construction and mud debris, concrete and asphalt millings, and broken pavement. The street sweeper needs to have the ability to dump this debris into a dump truck so that the road construction site doesn’t need to be cleared.
Street sweeper hire generally offers three different types of street sweepers. First, there is the mechanical street sweeper where debris is swept onto a conveyor system to then transport the material into a collecting hopper. Second, there is the regenerative air street sweeper where air is blown onto the pavement, raising fine sediments and particles that are then vacuumed up. This is a good option for construction sites with a large amount of dust and dirt, as this machine can pick up particles as small as 10 micrometres. The main issue with the regenerative air sweeper is the noise level, since the street sweeper requires an extra engine to power the vacuum pump. Third, there is the vacuum street sweeper that combines the vacuuming power of the regenerative air sweeper with the mechanical sweeping power. Some street sweeper hire suppliers are also equipped with sprayers and water tanks which reduce dust and loosen particles.
Street sweepers come in a variety of different designs so you can be sure to find one that fits the sweeping requirements for your next project. Some are made for construction sites, while others are made for urban settings or roads. It helps to know your requirements for your street sweeper before you begin browsing through suppliers. You’ll need to know your required transport speed. Is there a large distance between the overnight parking location for the sweeper and your site? Also, how are you planning to transport debris to your disposal site? Will the sweeper be off-loading into a dump truck which can then transport the material away?
